Preserved red beancurd, also known as Shanghai red bean curd, is an essential ingredient in Chinese BBQ pork char siu.

The preserved red beancurd is tofu fermented in a brine made from rice wine, salt water and monascus red rice, a deep red yeast that colours the liquid. Over time, the breakdown of proteins softens the bean curd and develops intense umami pugency - praised in stir-fries and braised vegetable dishes. The red yeast also gives the red colour to char siu roast meat, red-braised Chinese dishes or even fish.

Refrigerate after opening and use within a few days. Ingredients: soybean, wine, salt, sugar, red rice. Contains soy & gluten.
